In the Tech World, the Graybeard is the older engineer who tutors all the young 'uns. A Silicon Graybeard is my name for an old electronics engineer. Here are mental droppings on liberty, firearms, radio, home machine shops and making all kinds of stuff - electronic and more. Someone needs to know how to do just about anything after the collapse, and that someone is us.
